    What is the best Greek dish to bring to a potluck?

    I would do spanakopita, or something like this, which is always a crowd pleaser. It's more Greek-inspired than traditional Greek, but the flavors are all there. I serve it with crispy pita chips or soft pita bread cut in triangles: https://www.skinnytaste.com/greek-7-layer-dip/

    How to make a refreshing watermelon drink for the summer!

    This looks delicious! You know, watermelon and ouzo taste great together. I wonder how your creation would taste with a bit of ouzo in it? To make it into a cocktail?

    Where to go in Athens for some of the best nightlife!

    Rooftop bars are definitely a favorite of mine in Athens. Besides Thissio, Exarchia, and Gazi, does anyone know any others? For the next time I am in Athens?

    The best foods to try while in Santorini

    I love, love, love tomato and fava fritters .... I fell in love with tomato fritters on Santorini! The sweet wine, Mandilaria, tastes especially delicious with the tomato fritters.

    How to make juicy Greek style lamb burgers!

    I find the same thing, that I usually mix in some 90% lean beef with the lamb. A ratio that works for me is 3 parts lamb and 1 part beef.

    How expensive is it to travel around the Ionian islands by boat?

    I have always wanted to do this too! I hear of people doing it and to save money, they do a charter for a small yacht that maybe sleeps ten and then they split the cost between all ten people.

    What are the most in demand jobs for Greek speakers?

    You actually could make extra money while you're in school as an online tutor for Greek. This will give you experience professionally working with the Greek language, and for things like translation, etc. It's good for the resume. Platforms: https://preply.com/ https://www.verbling.com...

    What is the difference between the Roman and Byzantine empire?

    The Roman Empire used to be HUGE and it became difficult to manage. It split apart for the eastern Roman Empire (which became the Byzantine Empire) and the Western Roman Empire (which became the portion we associate with Rome and all that). I don't remember all the details but this is gist.

    Is it easy to eat gluten free in Greece?

    The people who I know who travel as gluten free end up packing a lot of their own food, and they end up with a vacation place that has a kitchen, just in case they realize they have to cook. It creates an extra step but it gives me peace of mind.

    What is the most debated topic in Greek history?

    We don't really debate, we're pretty much in agreement. We LOVE talking about the Spartans especially, and in general, the Second Persian Invasion and its many battles.
